Notes on the Geography of Argentina: Rich, Poor, and Dead: Photo 3

world pictures Argentina: Rich, Poor, and Dead

Three hundred meters to the east, there's a statue of General Carlos de Alvear (1788-1852), who defeated the Spanish troops at Montevideo in 1814. It, too, was shipped from France, but the sculptor was Antoine Bourdelle (1861-1929). The date: 1925. Do you hear a "Hi-yo, Silver!"? It's not so far-fetched, either: General Alvear was the first Argentine ambassador to the United States and served a long time, from 1838 to 1852.

The woman on the left, holding a vine, represents liberty; the man, holding a rough club, represents force.
